RE: Digital Cheetah versus Volunteerhub

July 18th 2017

Thank you, Candie! That's really helpful information. I've looked at SignUp.com, but not in depth. I like that docents can look at the live schedule, implying that it may change.  We have docent corps of about 500 at this point, and may be growing. Let me know if you think SignUp.com would work on that scale.  Best, Kelly Jane *From:* [email protected] <[email protected]> on behalf of Candie Waterloo [email protected] [talk at museum-ed.org] <[email protected]> *Sent:* Monday, July 17, ...Continue Reading

School Tour and Docent Scheduling

July 17th 2017

Hi everyone,   I’m hoping to update some of the docent/tour infrastructure for our school tours program and want to learn more about programs of comparable size. If you work for an encyclopedic museum in a large city reaching at least 45,000 students annually through the service of at least 100 docents, I want to know more!   I’m wondering: ·         Are the majority of tours guided or self-guided? What is the percentage of each? ·   &nbs ...Continue Reading

RE: Digital Cheetah versus Volunteerhub

July 17th 2017

Hello – While I don’t have experience with the two platforms that you mentioned, I have used SignUp.com which was formerly Volunteer Spot. I’m not what the other platforms have that SignUp doesn’t, but for my purposes it works well. I’ve found that many of my docents aren’t very tech savvy, so the simpler the better is my approach. With SignUp, they are able to track hours, see the tour schedule live at their fingertips, sign up for tours, switch spots, etc. I’ve transitioned two programs to this system and it’s ...Continue Reading
